Our interventional radiology research and simulation lab, which opened in 2012, contains equipment identical to that in our clinical labs. The research lab not only allows interventional radiologists to develop and master new techniques that can be used to treat your child, but provides an excellent › Continue Reading

The babies in our neonatal unit are very delicate and require special care. Many are extra small in size due to prematurity, while others are sick and frail due to an underlying illness. These babies often receive important medications through intravenous › Continue Reading

How can you make breast imaging better? This is the question asked by a group of engineers, imaging scientists, and radiologists. The answer they found was amazing. Researchers in Cincinnati Children’s Imaging Research Center took on this challenging question last › Continue Reading

How can imaging change the outcome for the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in children and young adults? This is the question that drives the work of the faculty and staff of the Imaging Research Center at Cincinnati Children’s. You › Continue Reading

  Dr. Alexander Towbin, Chair of Radiology Informatics at Cincinnati Children’s, explains how the Radiology Department has worked to get your child’s x-ray results back faster.

Perhaps your child’s MRI examination is ordered with “MRS.” What does that mean? In radiology, MRS stands for magnetic resonance spectroscopy. This test allows us to see certain naturally appearing chemicals in the body in addition to the usual pictures taken with the › Continue Reading
